Hello all, I have a question about case size on a 223 rem. If 1.750" is the trim length, what is the minimum safe length for the said case? I can't find the answer in my Speer book.
What is acceptable sizes on the high and low side? Thanks in advanse.

I wouldn't trim shorter than 1.740", though some have reported cases in the 1.73x" range

I haven't measured any of it, but that Federal FC brass is FREAKING short!!!  It's well under the min/max parameters on my headspace guage.  I doubt I'd ever end up trimming any of that stuff before it hits the scrap bucket.
